The Bankers 2 Leaders division of the Alabama Bankers Association held its annual Legislative Day in Montgomery on April 17.

Nearly 150 bankers and high school students from all over the state attended the annual event, which included an encouraging keynote address from Dr. Neil Scott, vice chancellor for student success at the Alabama Community College System.

According to ABA President and CEO Scott E. Latham the event is designed to heighten awareness of the students as to how state government works and to encourage involvement in the democratic process at a young age.

“Students actually have the chance to talk with their legislators and state government leaders about issues prevalent in their own communities, while getting a first-hand view of how the legislative process works,” he said. “Bankers in Alabama have a tremendous sense of community and make service to their communities a top priority. Events such as Legislative Day are designed to reinforce and facilitate this priority by giving our bankers the opportunity to interact with students.”

Troy Bank and Trust took two Pike County Schools Business and Finance Academy stuents – Isaiah Rogers and Chloe Johnson – to the event.
